An interesting Stone Building of fine construction and preservation
stands alone on an empty town lot on the north side of Hwy 49. The
structure was built in the 1850ís of dressed rhyolite tuff, quarried in
nearby Pleasant Valley. It originally housed a general store, possibly
run by Louis Lepetit, and at one time had wooden additions on each
side, which have long since disappeared. The building still looks
capable of serving as some kind of store or business; perhaps with a
little restoration it might one day be used again.
